Hello All,
I've read through the MCRA rule book, did some track days and race schools from 2012 till the present, HPT, Putnam, NCM etc...

I'm taking the next step to start racing, picked up the license at Putnam back in April and I planned to hit my first race at Gateway next week before I PCS.
I have to 2 bikes working on a 3rd as we speak. Safety wired, dyno'd, tires, suspension the whole 9, almost. Am I wrong to race with standard fairings? Working on a budget and If I must I can get some Armour Bodies in by Fri/Mon and have them mounted before the race. I dont want to rush but I also dont wont to hamper myself either. From what I read I think legal to race in GT Unlimited with both bikes but that was not clearly obvious to me when I signed up through motorsportsreg.com? Thoughts, suggestions, advice I'll use it all, thanks.

'13 BMW HP4
'05 Kawasaki 636
-- working on getting a '14 Kawasaki 300

Which ever bike you race must have a bellypan capable of hold 3 quarts of liquid. Some including myself have used turkey pans stuffed and secured inside the OEM fairings.

According to the rule book it's only 3 quarts of fluid (see 5.2.20). :)

Yeah I just double checked and changed it.


Skip the 300 and buy my 250, I'll make you a great deal on a race ready one!

^This. Can vouch that this dude definitely knows what he is doing with these 250s.

This is one I have for sale right now, but someone is on the verge of buying it.

I have another that is almost identical, biggest difference is it's got a full Leo vince exhaust on it and no gauge cluster as I used my GPX Pro as my cluster.

Both bikes will be at gateway next weekend.

Look for me at Gateway, I'll be the one with a red trailer and two bikes. Not hard set on 250 vs 300 but the price and track/ready is definitely a plus.

as far as bodywork and belly pans. When you said turkey pan, you are meaning the aluminum pans at walmart???? could it be that simple :)

Yep its that simple, make sure its mounted in a safe and
workman-like manner. (Zip-ties and duct tape do not
qualify as safe and workman-like mounting.)

Easier if you find me, I'll be running tech. My bikes will be by tech, 2 flat black 250s, pink #50 on one yellow #81 on the other.
